Trent Richardson Undergoes Minor Surgery

Friday February 24th, 2012

Alabama running back and top draft prospect Trent Richardson will not participate in on-field drills during the NFL combine this week after undergoing minor knee surgery, according to ESPN.

Although he is not participating in the NFL Combine this week as a precaution, the Alabama running back will participate in the interviewing process.    Richardson will be healthy enough to participate in on-field activities by the end of March, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The Alabama running back sustained the injury during a practice before the BCS National Championship Game.  Despite the knee injury, he ran for 96 yards and scored a touchdown in the 21-0 victory over LSU.
